Chocolate Layer Cake Afghan


As decadent in appearance as a three-layer dessert, this Chocolate Layer Cake Afghan is soon to be next on your project list. Made with creamy panels of chevron separated skillfully with vertical ladders and peeping rows of the purl stitch, this pattern offers exceptional texture that's as fun to look at as cake is to eat. Paired with alternating stripes of brown and beige, this knit afghan pattern is a definite recipe for success.

This chevron pattern blanket has a lovely texture that makes the chevrons pop. The designer made hers in worsted weight cotton yarn, which I really like working with. She also gives stitch counts to make smaller or larger size afghans, from baby blanket to almost twin bed size, which is very helpful.

I am making this for my son for a wedding gift and I think there is either a mistake in the pattern or I am doing something different than the way you do it. I have started this pattern twice and I have come out with the same result. This is the only way I can describe it my "v's" aren't connecting all the way across. Can someone explain this for me? Thanks.

Looks good enough to eat!

The article for chocolate layer cake mentions alternating stripes of brown & beige, but picture does not indicate this. Are you supposed to alternate each row? Pattern does not indicate when to change color. Would love to make this but am a bit confused about directions. Thanks

If you go to the pattern and read down the comments it tells about changing colors and when.
